I have seen quite a lot of movies this year. Indeed, I love getting lost into a good story. I’ve laughed watching Despicable me 3, I’ve been inspired by The Zookeeper’s wife, I’ve been scared with Split. I have to say though that Atomic Blonde really puzzled me. It is definitely in my top three of 2017 because the ending is such a surprise. An intricate and highly interesting plot. Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is MI6 best asset.

Ten years is a long time....Read More

Big Little Lies has not only the most impressive cast (Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgård just to name a few), it has a perfect story-line. From the first episode, we know that there is a murder but until the last 10 minutes of this mini-series, we won’t know who killed whom? I found it fascinating and I hope you will too. All that glitters is not gold. Jane is a new single mother in town. When she drops off her son on his first day of school, she instantly befriends Madeleine and Celeste. Little do...Read More
Pablo Escobar: Everyone has heard the name but are you familiar with the story? Narcos is a new TV series introduced by Netflix and it is fantastic. Incredibly interesting, it mixes fiction and facts perfectly. “Plata O Plomo”: your choice, silver or lead. “Despite his threats, many brave men defied him. And, true to form, when the pen failed … Pablo was always ready with the sword.” — Steve Murphy Pablo Escobar was both brilliant and mad.
